Decrease Font Size Increase Font Size Text Size Print This Page

Spamalot comes to Sunderland Empire for six nights next week – and we’ve got two tickets to give away to see the show.

Starring Joe Pasquale and his son Joe Tracini, Spamalot tells the legendary tale of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table and features a bevy (or possibly a brace) of beautiful show girls, witch burnings (cancelled due to health and safety) not to mention cows, killer rabbits and French people.

It comes to Sunderland Empire from 18-23 May.

The show promises ‘fantastic tunes more magical than a Camelot convention’, including He Is Not Dead Yet, Knights of the Round Table, Find Your Grail and, of course, Always Look On The Bright Side Of Life.

The latest tour, directed by Christopher Luscombe, follows hot on the heels of the can’t-believe-how-successful-it-was-with-the-first-show-selling-out-in-40-seconds Monty Python Reunion at The O2 and Eric Idle’s acclaimed performance of ‘Always Look On The Bright Side of Life’ at the 2012 Olympic Closing Ceremony.

According to the press release, during the West End run, ‘there were 21 onstage moustache incidents, three suspected cases of swine flu (French pigs!), three outbreak of nits and 92 pairs of coconuts used.’

So, fancy getting your hands on a pair of tickets for the opening night on Monday 18 May? Simply answer this question:
